About This Item

Jonathan Cape, London, 1926. First Edition (first printing). 8vo. 284pp. Black cloth lettered in gold at the spine and with a small gold-stamped decoration to the upper board. With decorated endpapers, a title page decoration, a frontispiece and twelve Henderson tailpiece decorations. Top edge lightly dust marked and spotted, others untrimmed. A narrow strip of browning to the free endpapers and a touch of soiling to the pastedowns. A very good copy in the most uncommon dust wrapper which reproduces a larger version of the frontispiece design; the wrapper is price-clipped, tanned at the spine panel, a little marked, spotted and stained in places with a tiny sliver of loss from the head of the spine panel, just a fraction of further loss from the tail and several more millimetres of loss from the corner tips and upper edge. A historical novel by the honorary Inkling, retelling 'The Tale of Styrbjörn the Swedish Champion', written between his celebrated fantasy works 'The Worm Ouroboros' (1922) and the 'Zimiamvian Trilogy' (1935-1958).. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good.
